This is after Motorola and Verizon have sent out an invitation to the media with a cryptic message that says: “Everything you expect from a phone will change.”

“Rumors suggest that we’ll see both the Droid Turbo 2 and the Droid Maxx 2 at the event. A rather extensive list of specifications for a device with the codename “Kinzie” appeared several months ago, and recent evidence points to this being the Turbo 2. If so, the new flagship will likely feature a 5.5-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 810, 3GB of RAM, 20-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, Turbo Charging, and Android 5.1.1,” according to BGR.

Phone Arena describes the Droid Turbo 2 as a “high-end smartphone.” Meanwhile, the Droid Maxx 2, is expected to be Verizon’s version of the Motorola X Play. The upcoming phone is expected to sport a 5.5-inch 1080p display and it will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor.

It was also reported that Verizon has now featured a Droid Landing webpage which will allow “users register for updates on the latest Droid device launches.” The company claims that “your expectations of a phone will be shattered” once the new Droid phones arrive. “Not long ago, we heard that the Motorola X Force – the global variant of the Droid Turbo 2 – would be a ‘shatterproof’ phone. It looks like Verizon is now indirectly confirming this. But we’ll see what happens on October 27,” the report noted.
